I do believe i have commented on this ship of fools before, maybe different source. wonderful extra long solo, nice Jerry.This recording not being complete would maybe mean minus one star, but this is Really good.

Just revisited this site recently after downloading hundreds of hours of music ten or more years ago. Thanks to Charlie Miller for devoting his time in his pursuit of this music...a hero to those of us who are on the receiving end. Would love to hug that brother and tell him thanks in person....very nice set. So glad to be able to still access this music as are countless others. Much appreciated.

"Old School" Samson & Delilah
I don't know it its a mistake or what, but Weir brings back the chorus verse before the lyrics, like all the other pre-Brent versions. Never heard that with Brent, so maybe a mistake, maybe just a thoughtless moment of spontaneous improvisation.
Not that big of a deal, just worth pointing out.
Black Peter is one of the better versions I have heard. Jerry croons in the end making it an exceptionally passionate version.
This is not a traditional five star show, and is certainly overshadowed by 12.1 & 12.26, because they are better played. There are flubs in the playing. I'm giving this a five star because of originality in playing, nice long jams in He's Gone and Other 1, even if they are mellow, still well taken.
No "Space" segment in this show after drums, and Hart sits in with what sounds like Garcia and Brent. Good good stuff.
This is a Jerry led show in terms of energy and flow of playing.
Great show BTW. Thanks again Mr. Miller. Love these Winter 79' shows! Where in the world is set 1 sbd??

I heard some highlights from this show on the GD Hour years ago. I recorded the show on tape but lost it on tour. This is the best Shakedown I've ever heard and the jam outta He's Gone rolls out! The Other One and Drumz are also choice. People need to check this show out!
